Default GingerHDR open beta for Mac and Win

If you are at all interested in this plug-in for After Effects and Premiere, whether you want to apply filmic toning to EXR stills or HDR video generated by Magic Lantern, you can download the open beta for Mac or Win. Give it a shot.

Hi Everybody. We're in the final stages of launching here and I'm happy to announce that the Mac/Win Beta is finally open to everyone until March 15. There are a few minor tweaks to make, but what you are seeing is very close to the final version so please let me know immediately if anything bad happens. Pricing will be announced about a week before launch. Also, once launched there will be a 30-day free trial, so even though the Beta ends on March 15, you will still have uninterrupted use until April 14th if you choose to start the trail immediately.

One more question that has popped up is some people need to activate but don't have internet connectivity from their work computer. Before launching, there will be a web form where you can enter your mac address and start a trial or activate a license that way.

You can get the full information on this blog post:

There has been a ton of work on the Magic Lantern workflow. The algorithm for optical flow has been updated and the formula for merging the underexposed and overexposed images has been completely rewritten.
For those of you that like to blend your underexposed/overexposed frames manually you can now export the tracks after optical flow but before merging to EXR.
Some small additions have been added to the plugin. In the grading menu, you can enable a mode to debug where the shadows/midtones/highlights cutoff is.
For the Windows and Mac OPEN Beta:

Good luck! And as always, please report bugs to info@19lights.com.

Yes - I've used it for still images (i.e., filmic treatment of EXR files) as well as processing of HDR video generated by the Magic Lantern 5DmkII "Holiday Edition" version. The approach taken by the author is a welcome departure from standard local tone mapping algorithms, and provides the user the ability to mimic the film curve approach to creating tonal compression without nasty artifact.
